About Gokhan Dincmen

I was a resident in Kalkan from 1996 and I know the town well, having been co-owner of the Water Sports company at Kalamar Beach Club before immigrating. I watched it grow from a small fishing village to its current status as the playground of British and European holidaymakers. I now live in Australia with my Aussie partner, and enjoy returning to my “home” annually to see my family and friends, and to show Suzanne the wonders of Turkey and Kalkan. ‘Australis’ is the Latin word meaning ‘Southern’. The villa was named after its southern location on the Turkish Mediterranean coastline and my ties with Australia, derived from “Terra Australis”.

Gokhan Dincmen purchased this villa in 2012

Why Gokhan Dincmen chose Kalkan

Kalkan is one of the prettiest Mediterranean towns on the Southern coast of Turkey. A 15 minute leisurely stroll from the villa or a short bus ride will find you in the heart of Kalkan’s restaurant and entertainment hub where you can meander down cobbled streets between historical buildings covered in pink bougainvillea. You will be tempted by quaint shopping boutiques, an array of fine dining experiences, cocktail bars, coffee and ice-cream shops open every night of the week during peak season. Perhaps you will take a day trip out on one of the many boats or catamarans located in the marina. Kalkan is a great location to use as a base to explore other tourist attractions along the coast, such as Patara Beach and the famous towns of Fetiye and Kas.

What makes this villa unique

The highlight of this property is its proximity to the finest beach club in Kalkan (within easy walking distance) which contains a large variety of fun water sports activities for children and adults, including the Dive Centre where you can complete your PADI Dive Certificate. The Villa itself has an attractive upper decked terrace off the main bedroom which is separate to the lower pool terrace. Here couples can enjoy private time away from the children while sipping a glass of wine on the sun loungers and watching the sun set over the bay.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Gokhan's villa. The villa was perfect for our family. The views from the penthouse bedroom are stunning. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. Ender was very helpful and looked after us well. We would definitely recommend this villa for a fabulous stay in Kalkan.

Beautiful property in quiet residential location

  • 4 of 5

4th time in Kalkan but first time staying in the Kalamar area. Really enjoyed our 8 nights staying at Villa Australis. The villa has great views over Kalamar Bay from the upper level decking area, which is a great place for sunbathing during the day or watching the sunset in the evening with a G&T.

The villa is lovely and clean and well maintained, there are plenty of loungers around the pool area and shaded areas to escape the midday sun.

Ender is always on hand to provide assistance should the need arise.

We will definitely return to this villa in the future.

We enjoyed using the beach clubs which are only 200 metres away and the Kalamar restaurants are very good quality, our particular favourite is Brothers on Kalamar Road.

Thank You!!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa really is a bit special, from the master bedroom and the view it offers every morning, to the cleanliness and the welcome on arrival. The booking process was straight forward and Ender, the owners cousin, was the most chilled out person you could meet. Nothing was too much trouble for him even when we had a couple of mishaps in the villa. Gokhan thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay at your villa, we hope to return!

Clean and Comfortable with a Penthouse to die for

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the area before we new what to expect - relaxing holiday, good food, good swimming and excellent hospitality. We also new about the hill! Villa Australis is very clean and comfortable and fairly modest on the ground floor but the Penthouse Retreat on the first floor put the rest of the villa in the shade. The pictures do not do it justice. Having paid for the holiday and talking two grown up children my conscious was clear taking the first floor suite but it may cause some problems if two couples are sharing the villa. Will certainly go back to the area and the villa again.

Stunning penthouse views

  • 4 of 5

Just arrived back after a fabulous 2 week's stay at Villa Australis, The villa is located in the Kalamar area of Kalkan and is a perfect spot to walk to the beach and soak in the stunning views from the amazing penthouse bedroom. The villa is well equipped and clean but again the highlight is the master bedroom with it's uninterrupted views even from the shower. We spent most of our time on the terrace looking straight out onto the med or star gazing with a glass or 2! The villa is situated on a quiet street and is literally a 5 minute walk to the fabulous Kalamar beach where we enjoyed snorkelling, swimming and even a Jet Ski ride. The walk into town is up quite a steep hill but manageable in the evening, there is however a lovely restaurant 'House Cafe' round the corner that serves superb meals with excellent service. Would definitely recommend the villa for couples although if you are travelling with friends there would be a fight as to who stayed in the penthouse!!

Lovely villa in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Australis is a lovely place to stay. Exceptionally well appointed it is also in an excellent location. We found it extremely comfortable, it had great views and all the facilities we needed. Although we went out and explored a lot we were also just as happy chilling at the villa - relaxing on the sunbeds reading and enjoying the pool. It's just a short walk down the hill to Kalamar beach club where you can easily spend the day. At Kalamar beach club you pay a small fee for sunbed & use of water trampoline, kayak and paddleboat. You can also use their WIFI if needing to keep in touch with work! The swimming is great too. If we needed to go into Kalkan we either walked 25 minutes or jumped in a cab which is a very reasonable way to travel. Ender who looked after the villa was incredibly helpful and we couldn't fault the villa in anyway. We are definitely planning a return trip. Kalkan itself is a lovely place. Everyone is so friendly, there are some lovely places to eat out and the sea is absolutely magical for swimming. We went on a boat day trip with Zeus which was fantastic and had adventures to Patara and the stunning Zaputas beach. We also visited the Kalkan beach park one day which was fun - we were with our kids so they loved the waterslide coming down into the sea. A fantastic holiday and definitely made better by the lovely Villa Australis.
